Reblogged Right Here, Right Now – HC Gilje’s Networks of Specificity

Posted by Mitchell Whitelaw on Teeming Void: This essay was commissioned by Hordaland Kunstsenter in Bergen, Norway, to coincide with HC Gilje’s solo exhibition blink (video below). It looks at Gilje’s recent work – which spans audiovisual installation, performance, hardware, and networked forms – through the notion of specificity (developed earlier here).

Europeans Act Now – Preserve a Free and Open Internet

300px-internet_map_1024.jpgURGENT– The European open internet is in danger. The EU PARLIAMENT is voting on new rules on the 5th of MAY 2009 that will let broadband providers limit your access. Don’t let the them lock up the Internet! There will be no way back! [image from Visual Dictionary online]

Internet access is not conditional. Everyone who owns a website has an interest in defending the free use of the Internet… so has everyone who uses Google or Skype… everyone who expresses their opinions freely, does research of any kind, whether for personal health problems or academic study … everyone who shops online…who dates online…socialises online… listens to music…watches video… Continue reading

Cyborgorganism – Open Cities [br Sao Paulo]

scie.jpgA10LAB & SCIE PROTOCOL are invited to the MobilFest III – Conference on Cyborgorganism – Open CitiesElectromagnetic Spectrum Research performance by THE NOISER :: November 14-17, 2008 :: Sao Paulo, Brazil.

“The Farther we emerge from the inner city, the more political the atmosphere becomes. We reach the docks, the inland harbors, the warehouses, the poor neighborhoods, the scattered refuges of wretchedness: the outskirts. Outskirts are the state of emergency of a city, the terrain on which incessantly rages the great decisive battle between town and country. It is nowhere more bitter between Marseilles and the provençal landscape. It is the hand-to-hand fight telegraph poles against agaves, barbed wire against thorny palms, the miasmas of stinking corridors against the damp gloom under the plane trees in brooding squares, short-winded outside staircases against the mighty hills.

Ars Telefonica [ro Bucharest]

arstelefonica.jpgArs Telefonica :: until October 30, 2008 :: Centre for Visual Introspection, 16 Biserica Enei, Bucharest, District 1, Romania.

Scheduled to take place with regularity in Bucharest, involving with each edition new curatorial formats, Ars Telefonica is conceived as a temporary platform for exhibition display which proposes a re-reading of the connections settled in a specific context between art, its venue and audience. The decision of the curators to appropriate for this edition a temporary space for exhibition display – the phone booth – responds to the actual request of the local art scene to search for new contexts of dissemination of contemporary art and to establish a community of interest for this cultural sector.

The question dropped by the project is to which extend a temporary platform of this kind can disturb the behavior of the art public, the accidental public or of the partners participating directly to contemporary art production? Do these spaces have a potential in facilitating or in speeding up the process of social and cultural exchange? Continue reading

Live Stage: DAREDx [ca Montreal]

mbiederman1.jpgMatthew Biederman – DAREDx at Cabot Square :: August 29 – September 21, 2008 (off on Mondays) :: Opening: August 29; 5:00 – 9:00 pm :: FM Transmitter Workshop: August 31; 2:00 pm :: Walks + Talks: September 7 and 14; 2:00 pm :: Conference: September 20-21; 1:00 – 5:00 pm ::

Today’s radio spectrum is predominately utilized by the military and governmental organizations, with government regulating bodies doling out expensive licenses to corporations for the right to broadcast en masse in public space. These powerful “one way” broadcast licenses have come to be understood as ‘radio’ versus the initial conception of radio as a “many to many” communications medium. Continue reading

Reblogged Un-Dead-Link, physical death of a computer game

a_080602_01.jpgJapanese media art unit Exonemo’s latest work focuses on the differences between two worlds – the real, physical and our increasingly information-based, virtual. Citations of doubt in the real world itself among the two artists (Sembo Kensuke and Yae Akaiwa) led to an identification and consideration of a gap between the two worlds, namely one of “death.” For the duo, “death” in the real world has no relation to a death in the proposed imaginary world of information. Un-Dead-Link (exhibited at Plug-In, Basel till August 24) works to connect the different realities and blur such a boundary by relying on a pre-programmed software with electronic goods Exonemo bought in Basel. “We modified the game Half-Life2 by using Garry’s mod. The game is connected to the piano while all electrical goods are connected by midi/dmx (protocol) with custom devices.” With that, the audience can see, feel and hear the effects of a symbolic death in a computer game in an actual physical environment, bridging the gap. The gallery has two contrasting spaces- the ground floor is bright and open while the basement floor is dark and closed; reflecting the two worlds in the space. — Vicente Gutierrez, Neural.
